Snickers does this all the time. Snoopy does not. If you have only trimmed your dog twice in 3 years I would be worried about tight, on the skin matting, which may well make it uncomfortable for jumping. I'm not the most attentive of all groomers and have been guilty of allowing her to get more matted than I would have wanted and have found that Snicks will not be as quick to jump up on my lap as when she is mat and tangle free - just something to check is all.
I find that with Snickers it's more of a function of worrying about "clearing everything" than anything else. If I have my laptop in my lap she will wait till I put it down, but will want to make sure she won't hit it on the jump. On the other hand, if I'm sitting and have my lap "unencumbered" with either a dog or a cat she can take an amazing leap and land without difficulty where ever she wants to.
Don't know if that helps or not, but at least you know that your dog isn't the only one!!
